Re: GIANT UPDATE: Build FFmpeg and mpv – Automatically in 54 Minutes!

When I install pre-compiled debian packages (which were compiled on raspberry pi 3 having latest raspbian) on freshly installed raspbian on raspberry pi 3 following Appendix 8 from https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=199775&p=1360263#p1360263 . I get these errors while running f...

Re: GIANT UPDATE: Build FFmpeg and mpv – Automatically in 54 Minutes!

I've done some more tests, and rotating the video using the mpv --video-rotate flag is working properly. I'm glad to hear my build of mpv is still performing flawlessly — even when forced to play a video at a 90-degree angle! I've done some more tests, and rotating the video using the mpv --video-r...

Re: GIANT UPDATE: Build FFmpeg and mpv – Automatically in 54 Minutes!

I've built and installed your mpv on a fresh Raspbian intallation (latest Raspbian image available) and it works perfectly..... Awesome! I'm glad we got that on the record — that my GPU-accelerated build of mpv works perfectly! But when the screen is configured in portrait mode (display_hdmi_rotate...

Re: Good News for the Raspberry Pi!

It's good news when any big software company backs Linux and/or the distro one is personally using; they will have the self-interest, the motivation, money and resources, to fix bugs, make improvements, champion changes, and all that trickles down to everyone else. The Pi benefits because it's Debi...

Re: Good News for the Raspberry Pi!

Anyway, why does Google moving from one Debian distro, to another Debian distro make much of a difference..... Goobuntu was NOT a "Debian distro", as you wrongly state — it was a Linux distro based on Ubuntu. And yes, Ubuntu is based on Debian. I'm sure you know all this, but it still isn't helpful...

Re: Good News for the Raspberry Pi!

Not sure if the foundation willing to let the future of Pi depends on gLinux instead of Raspbian. I guess it is not hard to think about what Android meant to Huawei. The Raspberry Pi Foundation is not letting the future of the Raspberry "depend" on gLinux! Google is merely making contributions — as...

Re: Good News for the Raspberry Pi!

The problem with very large, rich, companies deciding to use software being developed or maintained by someone else is that you tend to quickly get into a "tail wagging the dog" situation. What is good for Google in their version isn't necessarily good for Debian or other Debian users. This, in my ...

Re: Good News for the Raspberry Pi!

If other news sites didn't pick up on it, it's one of two things: not really of much import; or a colossal hushed-up conspiracy unearthed by an intrepid researcher. This logical fallacy is known as the "false dichotomy". It's when two choices are falsely presented as the only options — when another...

Re: Good News for the Raspberry Pi!

I still don't see why this is such a big deal. It's nice that some company is contributing effort to the Debian project. I'm sure Debian would have been continuing anyway without that. Google is hardly just "some company". Hardly! And just to be crystal clear to everyone out there, I never once sug...

Re: Good News for the Raspberry Pi!

a large company forking Debian for their own use is not going to affect an already existing fork for a different CPU architecture.

Re: Good News for the Raspberry Pi!

So I googled 'gLinux' alone this time, and now I see they announced their switch from Ubuntu to Debian in January 2018. Very much in the past indeed. I will bet my bottom dollar this "news" has no bearing whatsoever on Pi's destiny. If you had read the articles I linked to more carefully, you would...

I must be dense. I google '"gLinux" site:raspberrypi.org' as you proposed, and the only link returned is this very thread.

I just Googled the following term and was a bit surprised that no one on this website has ever mentioned this: "gLinux" site:raspberrypi.org So why is gLinux such good news for the long-term future of the Raspberry Pi?

Re: GIANT UPDATE: Build FFmpeg and mpv – Automatically in 54 Minutes!

I realise that my setup isn't exactly what you specify..... I'm using the 'stretch' version of rpi which is a 3B. I was wondering if it was due to the cflags including armv8 stuff (whereas the 3B is armv7)? I'm basically trying to display IP camera video on my TV connected via an HDMI port. To be h...

any reason why you didn't use code tags to make copy/pasting the code easy from this forum? I agree that a "code box" allows for a slightly quicker copy/paste.
